La Société des Célebrations du 375e Anniversaire de Montréal's reply.
La Société des Célebrations du 375e Anniversaire de Montréal is the organization mandated to oversee the administration of all 375th-anniversary events.
They have cordially refused (in writing) to disclose the VIP lists and total costs.
La Société des Célebrations du 375e Anniversaire de Montréal claims that DEMOCRATIQUE.CA INC. did not properly formulate our access to information request. They believe that the laws in Québec surrounding access to documents and personal information held by public bodies do not apply in this case.
In short, the organization believes that they can refuse access to information with respect to how our taxpayer dollars are spent to administer the 375th Anniversary!!!
In our access to information request, (April 2017), we requested the total costs to the taxpayers of Montréal for the 375th-anniversary celebrations, including the lists of all VIP guests invited
by our elected officials to 375th-anniversary celebration parties.
La Société des Célebrations du 375e Anniversaire de Montréal has also claimed that they will be publishing a full report of all activities related to the 375th Anniversary Celebration in due course.
It is not clear what they plan to publish in this report, or when.
We expedited a very simple and straightforward request.
There should be no confusion as to what we are requesting, and why.
We demand to know how our taxpayer dollars are being spent and the VIPS' they are being spent on!!!

Fair dealing is a statutory exception to copyright infringement and is also referred to as a user's right (as opposed to an owner's right). According to the Supreme Court of Canada, it is more than a simple defense; it is an integral part of the Copyright Act of Canada, providing a balance between the rights of owners and users. To qualify under the fair dealing exception, the dealing must be for a purpose enumerated in sections 29, 29.1 or 29.2 of the Copyright Act of Canada (research, private study, education, parody, satire,criticism or review and news reporting), and the dealing must be considered fair as per the criteria established by the Supreme Court of Canada.

CASE PENDING IMMEDIATE CLOSURE
"LES DEUX DOSSIERS"
December 13, 2018: DEMOCRATIQUE.CA INC. attends the CAQ Victory Ball. At this event, Joseph Pugliese meets with our newly elected Premier, François Legault. Did the Premier commit to "looking into" the Quebec Student Loans Case???
February 6, 2019
DEMOCRATIQUE.CA INC. receives a written reply from Quebec Premier, François Legault's office. This reply is to confirm that Quebec Environment Minister, Benoit Charette, is now actively reviewing DEMOCRATIQUE.CA INC's January 7, 2019, request.
On January 7, 2019, DEMOCRATIQUE.CA INC. expedited an official request to the attention of Québec Premier, François Legault. In this request, we ask the Premier's office to PUBLICLY disclose the UNCENSORED and COMPLETE 200-page CONFIDENTIAL report titled:
"CINTEC ENVIRONMENT INC. FINAL CLOSURE REPORT"
The citizens deserve to know the UNCENSORED TRUTH that is shadowed within this
CONFIDENTIAL report, especially the total volume of toxins found at this LaSalle site.

UNCENSORED AND RAW!!!
WE, THE CITIZENS, SEEK THE TRUTH,
WE, THE CITIZENS, DESERVE THE TRUTH!!!
tUPDATE: January 14, 2019
DEMOCRATIQUE.CA INC. has expedited our official access to information request to Montreal City Hall. This request is a follow-up to our February 19, 2018 question regarding full disclosure of these VIP lists.
"LES DEUX DOSSIERS"
The Official Movie Trailer, RETRACTED.
Today, Montreal City Hall has officially REFUSED DEMOCRATIQUE.CA INC’s access to information request regarding the 375th Anniversary VIP Lists. This request
was dated January 14, 2019. One must assume that no one watched the videos on www.democratique.ca surrounding the 375th ANNIVERSARY VIP LIST CASE.
April 2017: Did anyone hear what Ms. Valerie Plante had to say about MAYOR CODERRE “doing some pirouettes” around the VIP lists??? This was before she was elected Mayor of Montreal. Did anyone equally hear Ms.Valerie Plante state that she would disclose the 375th Anniversary VIP lists if she has them??? Once again,
this was said in April 2017 before she was elected mayor. WE WELCOME EVERYONE TO VIEW ALL THREE VIDEOS BELOW. PREPARE TO BE AMAZED......
Fast forward to February 2019, are Mayor Valerie Plante and her administration doing the "SAME PIROUETTES” in 2019 as seen with the former administration???
Are we seeing a repetition of the LaSalle VIP case??? Has it become a culture in Québec politics to use public money to entertain elected officials and their VIP’s??? Why do our elected officials allocate public money through private corporations such as La Société des Célebrations du 375e Anniversaire de Montréal, to administer taxpayer-funded events??? THE SAME THING HAPPENED IN OUR LASALLE VIP CASE. This type of culture creates very dangerous precedence where our elected officials can play the “personal information laws” card when asked to disclose which VIP’s our taxpayer dollars are being spent on. At least one thing is certain,
the City of Montreal does not deny that these 375th Anniversary Celebration VIP lists exist, they are simply refusing to disclose them. In our access to information request, we ask that the city of Montreal disclose the complete and UNCENSORED 375th Anniversary VIP lists.
These lists contain the names of all our elected officials, including all their VIP guests who attended the 375th Anniversary Celebration events as VIP’s.
Lest we never forget how these events are paid for with taxpayer dollars!!! Did we change 4 quarters for a loonie in Montreal???
Public money was spent to entertain our elected officials and their VIP guests at all 375th Anniversary Celebrations.
Public money is still being used to entertain mystery VIP’s????
One must assume that in 2019, our elected officials still feel that it’s in their best interests to keep these VIP lists CONFIDENTIAL.
Is it safe to say that our elected officials DO NOT WANT THE PUBLIC TO KNOW who they invite as VIP guests to taxpayer-funded events???
Are they hiding something, someone, or many persons??? ALL the answers are etched within these MYSTERY VIP LISTS!!!
Do govern yourselves accordingly. Rest assured that the 375th Anniversary VIP lists will be made PUBLIC!!!
You have our word!!!
